Prep Time:1 hour

Cook Time:1 hour



  • 200g pitted prunes, chopped
  • 1/3 cup dried apricots, chopped
  • 2/3 cup boiling water
  • ½ cup Vanilla Grapeseed Oil
  • ½ cup Organic Raw Vanilla Sugar
  • ¼ cup golden syrup
  • 1 egg
  • 1 ½ cups flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • Pinch of salt
  • ½ cup sultanas


Cover the fruit with the boiling water, and cool to room temperature Preheat the oven to 180°C. Grease a loaf tin. Place the oil, sugar, golden syrup, egg and drained water from the fruit in a bowl, and beat till light and creamy. Add the fruit and dry ingredients and mix till combined. Pour into the loaf tin and bake for 45-50 minutes, or till a skewer comes out clean. Leave in the tin for 5 minutes before removing to cool on a rack. It can be a good idea to wrap the loaf in a tea towel to cool to keep it extra moist. Slice and serve plain, or with butter.
